Forum: movies Subject: Height and some other features

Tracey - I'm struggling a bit to understand embedding height and using playlists. When I embed a video playlist, the video itself is sized to the width and height I specify, and the playlist titles hang below the video height with it's own (arbitrary) height and possibly a scroll bar if there's lots of video in the playlist. How do I adjust this "arbitrary" playlist height?

Audio playlists work otherwise. The hanging playlist is within the height I specify, but the scrollbar is truncated at the bottom unless the height is set to at least 380 pixels. If the playlist just has a few items and I set the height to 380 (or more) there's a big blank space below the short playlist. Trouble is, when I'm embedding a playlist of unknown length, it's a pain to format the embedding; right now I'm using the trial and error method.

Happens on FF-12, Safari 5.1.7, Chrome 19, and iOS 5.1.1.

What does the parameter "frameborder" do? I've tried lots of different parameters, but it doesn't seem to change anything onscreen.

Autoplay doesn't seem to work on any of the above browsers.

I saw something about a "Start" parameter on one of the forums, giving us the ability to start a video at some timecode after the beginning. Haven't been able to make that work either.

Any chance of getting updated usage and parameter documentation? I've worked a lot with JWPlayer, if there's something I can do to be helpful.
